My brother Aaron and I founded Homejoy when we realized that people wanted a simple and convenient way to book a trusted, reliable home cleaner. We started small by cleaning ourselves and in the last year have assembled a dream team that has rapidly scaled our platform to 31 cities across the United States and Canada. Our continuous double-digit growth positioned us as the leader in the home services space and, as a result, drew a lot of interest from potential investors.
Today I'm happy to announce that we've closed an additional $38 million in financing with our A and B rounds. Google Ventures led the Series A investment and contributed to a Series B led by Redpoint Ventures. Max Levchin, First Round Capital, Oliver Jung, Mike Hirshland, and others also contributed, bringing the company's total funding to $40 million. We welcome Joe Kraus, general partner at Google Ventures, and Geoff Yang, founding partner of Redpoint Ventures, to Homejoy's board. We couldn't be more excited to embark on the next phase of our journey with partners who value our mission of making homes happier everywhere and who share our vision of building a technology company that's changing how home services are delivered.
While this new investment reflects our growth to date, growing and moving so quickly hasn't been easy and we've certainly made mistakes. But, we continue to work hard to innovate and push the boundaries so we're always going beyond what our clients and professional service providers expect from us. This includes focusing on already-established initiatives to improve reliability, consistency and create an unparalleled customer experience.
Ultimately, we promise to always further our mission of happier homes: by giving people back time at home to do things they're more passionate about - to giving cleaning professionals access to opportunities to better support their own homes - to running our non-profit foundation which supports individuals in less fortunate situations and organizations who share our mission. We clearly have our work cut out for us, and will require more people on our team. Check out our careers page for current opportunities. We're a smart, passionate bunch, and if our mission and what we're doing speaks to you, I think you'll enjoy working with us.
Lastly, I want to take this chance to thank everyone that has supported us throughout the years and made today's announcement possible. Aaron and I quit everything we were doing four years ago to make something people wanted. Some may think of Homejoy as an overnight success, but it certainly is anything but that. It took a village of incredibly dedicated employees, investors, and partner cleaners to get this rolling and growing. And if there's anything we've learned, it's that we're always just getting started.
To Happier Homes Everywhere,
CEO & Co-Founder
